☝︎Watching Gers air-guitaring most of the time, it's just MEGA funny that in 2000 they had to postpone a few concerts because he hit his arm
Funny, and yet when Adrian was off for a few gigs in '99, they went ahead and did them without him. Davey broke his pinky later on that tour and they cancelled gigs. I wonder what it could mean!Don't forget that he had to play all the 3-4 note melodies during that show!!!! He was so crucial to the show...
The production and performances were stunning during the 1999 tour (during BNW too). The sound in Rock In Rio 2001 was also fantastic.I think that best version of the song was during the 99 tour. Last time I heard such a full sound at a Maiden show. Then BNW tour was as if the 3 guitars became thin ovenight.
Maiden's new albums not creating buzz? Far from the truth. And btw, the back catalog of every band always helps them.I however do not think that the albums they did created any real buzz. Indeed the reunion has a greated impact that the sum of its' parts...and this is due to their amazing back catalog of classic material.
At least they did onee really good album (Senjutsu) which is still way below their old standards.
This is for the most part due to their incredibly bad production value and lifeless renditions of the songs in the studio.
Steve has been riding the live sound quest wave since day one.
I just feel that apart from DOD all the albums (for the most part) needed a few more takes, or even better some better crafted / faster renditions. Sloppy playing and muddy sound with songs that need for the most part 5-8 % faster drums.
No proper vocal hook until the last song in TFF? Coming Home, Isle Of Avalon, Talisman!Take TFF, no proper vocal hook until the last song. They worked more on those vocal lines on the last two albums and it shows.
Senjutsu must be a perfect album, since I like all songs. You mentioned the old days... TNOTB & POM have 2 not so good/filler songs, while Senjutsu or BNW or AMOLAD are without such stats imo.But, it is fun to think about giving Steve (and the boys) the mandate to write the ‘perfect’ record- to really focus on it and craft it. Put some pressure on it, like the old days when they still had to make it big. A bit of fire in the belly.
This is not funny. Janick has learned every solo of Adrian (by this point) - that's the reason. And Janick was crucial during the BNW tour: 17 songs, he plays solos on 10 of them (on 11, if we count his Guitar Solo in Sanctuary), he also plays the licks in Wrathchild, the riff in 2 Minutes To Midnight and acoustic guitar in Dream Of Mirrors.☝︎Watching Gers air-guitaring most of the time, it's just MEGA funny that in 2000 they had to postpone a few concerts because he hit his arm
That doesn't make sense. Adrian had to learn Dave's solos (he played Dave's solo in Powerslave in 1998, after all), while Janick would play Adrian's and his own. Dave is irreplaceable.Probably that Adrian did not bother to learn Jan's sloppy solos!!

Yep, probably at least 3 songs. I want at least one new song (although the show will start in daylight), SOTC and HBTN or TNOTB. Clansman and RTTH too, because of their backdrops and stage props. They will film Download for sure.It will probably be filmed and Sky Arts will broadcast some highlights, as it has happened with previous editions of the festival.
Visually, the Cathedral set is one of their all time best imo.but I'm really going to miss that cathedral set.
im not complaining,just aces high is too much for him and even worst playing that as the final song.Just seen the backing track snafu from a recent Kiss concert- any grumbling about Bruce’s performance should see that shit show circus.
Makes me happy maiden are the real deal.
